The Lay Centre offers opportunities to explore theology, spirituality, and the history of the Church and Christianity in Rome.

Dialogue and faith are at the root of all our programs. For Christian groups, the programs are based on the tradition of liturgical prayer, erudite study, lively dialogue and pilgrimage, allowing time for reflection and spiritual enrichment.

The Lay Centre also organizes study programs in Rome for participants of other religious traditions, exploring dialogue and furthering mutual

understanding, while offering opportunities for genuine encounter in the Roman context.

A variety of formats include weekend and weeklong study programs, designed for universities—undergraduates, graduates and faculty—as well as groups and organizations of laity and Church leaders.
